One of the highlights will be the animal shows. The Animal Handling Show in the Pet Barn gives visitors the chance to cuddle guinea pigs and see a variety of other animals such as rabbits, chinchillas, gerbils, chipmunks and more.
From Easter until the end of October half term families can usually join in bottle feeding either lambs or kid goats. Pig racing takes place from May onwards. Check the daily programme to find out what’s on so you don’t miss anything.

Short pony rides are a lovely treat for pony-mad youngsters (height restrictions apply and extra charges apply).
The indoor playzone includes a large soft play area with a separate toddler zone, soft shooting cannon balls, mini tractor rides and a role play zone with play houses. During school holidays and at weekends families can enjoy Mr Ev’s Mini Panto in the theatre.
Outside are exciting attractions such as the Super Sledge Ride, a Junior Sledge Ride, Jungle Swamp Adventure Ride, Splash Paddle Boats for younger children, a trampoline and slides.
